Behind the Seams: House of Dior

This event has passed.

Get immersed in the opulent world of Dior—the fashion house where design icon Yves Saint Laurent got his start. The House of Dior dominated high fashion in the 1950s, and stylish Seattle women were not ones to be left out of the latest trends. See Dior garments from MOHAI’s collection, spanning the late 1940s to early 1960s.

Behind the Seams offers a peek into MOHAI’s collection to see treasures that are rarely seen. View garments in detail, from the silhouette to the underpinnings, and hear the stories that make them special.
